Sarah Palin was in the Kansas City area campaigning for Republican Sarah Steelman, and I don't know whether to laugh or cry at her outfit. In a tight Superman tee (because man of steel, and Steelman, etc.), movie star shades, black capris pants, and what can only be described as strappy clonkers that junior high students in the early '90s wore to their end of school dance, Sarah Palin's ensemble raised a few eyebrows, and a few red flags.
All that's missing is a scrunchie and maybe a Tamagotchi pet. If a picture is worth a thousand words, please, go ahead, drink it in.
The shirt's excusable -- she was just showing some support -- but the rest of the look, it borderline hurts. I feel personally affronted by such a terrible selection of clothing. If you want me to vote for you, or for who you want me to vote for, show me that you know how to put together an outfit.
Show me that you have the wherewithal to look at a pair of shoes and know that they're not the best choice for a pop up rally in a blueberry field. Show me you know something about dressing for success. Don't show me your french-manicured toes sticking out of a pair of 5-inch platforms.
Sarah looked so sharp during the 2008 election -- whatever happened to those Tahari suits? Somewhere in the back of her closet, an Escada dress is weeping.
Thoughts on Sarah Palin's outfit?
